I somewhat failed at staying awake today. I was in a state up until 7 that was very questionably awake… more like half napping while sitting/standing/walking. The roughest was 2:30 AM to 4:30 AM. I was “bobbing for apples” pretty much the entire time. This was different than body exhaustion and from emotional exhaustion. It is a more simple type of exhaustion. Simply, my body wanted to go to sleep really badly!
I went to the gym for a 7 AM Muay Thai class and I literally struggled to stay awake while doing a 10 minute jump roping intro. My mind wandered and slowed while my body was jumping rope. I must have hit my feet 10 times more than I typically do. Once I got into the class and somewhat tried to hit me I woke right up though!
To combat this extreme exhaustion I purposefully took longer naps. This seems to be a good tactic that doesn’t set you back on adaptation much and helps get you through really hard days. It seemed to work and by the evening I was feeling pretty good!
